YV takes home Best Actress and Best Revival for Yerma at the 2017 Olivier Awards

We are overjoyed and honoured to have won two Olivier Awards at this year’s ceremony. Last night the talented Billie Piper won Best Actress for her role as ‘Her’ in Yerma, with the production itself taking out Best Revival. Our congratulations go out to all the winners across the categories.


Following a sold out run in 2016, Yerma returns to the Young Vic this July.  The two Olivier Awards adds to Billie Piper’s previous wins for this role of; Best Actress Evening Standard Theatre Awards, Best Actress Critic’s Circle Theatre Awards and Best Actress WhatsOnStage Awards.

The YV takes home 4 Oliviers

We are delighted and honoured to have won four Olivier Awards at this year’s ceremony.

Our hit production of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge bagged three prizes; Best Revival, Best Actor for Mark Strong and Best Director for Ivo van Hove, while Bull, a co-production with Supporting Wall, took home the award for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre.

Following sold out runs here at the Young Vic and in the West End, A View from the Bridge picked up more Olivier awards than any other play this year, adding to the two Critics’ Circle Awards for Best Actor and Best Director the show received earlier in 2015. On collecting his Olivier for Best Director Ivo van Hove said “London has been so generous to our work. It felt like coming home.”
